It was looking like a warm night so we held a quick barbecue this evening, and invited Nanny & Grumpy and Mike & Jan around.

It was actually only a ploy to get some helpers to come and perform the annual plum-picking extravaganza from the plum trees at the bottom of the garden. Some pruning in recent years led to a bumper crop this year, and we needed all kinds of extra tools and techniques to gather in the plums - including a fishing net for reaching those 'hard-to-get' plums, and a paddling pool to collect them in!
